Overview

Lucca Villa Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 10-12 people 5 double bedrooms, 3 baths, fully equipped kitchen, lounge

Lovely detached villa with pool, beautiful gardens and fantastic views situated in the hills between Lucca and Pisa.

The property (220 sq.mts) has 5 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a spacious well-fitted kitchen, laundry room and elegant lounge leading to patio and gardens. Well furnished and very comfortable with every modern convenience. An ideal place to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the beautiful surrounding countryside. Very conveniently situated, it offers an excellent base for day trips to most of the famous places of interest of Tuscany and it is only 30 mins away from the Versilian coast.

Villa La Magnolia: This lovely detached house is situated in the hills with views of

Lucca and is only 5 mins walk from local shops and bar.

Lucca is about 6 kms away and supermarkets about 4 kms.

The well kept gardens and patio are equipped with garden furniture and long table seating up to 16 people.

Lucca: The city of Lucca is entirely surrounded by medieval fortress walls and is almost completely closed to traffic. Passing through the ancient Roman gates one is transported back in time. It is possible to meander on foot or bike through the narrow paved streets and tall buildings which seem to lean out to touch one another in the sky. There are ancient palaces, museums and churches all rich in history and culture. There are many small, elegant shops, restaurants, bars, cinemas and the famous Teatro Giglio where Puccine and Verdi operas are played to a packed house.

Province of Lucca: The countryside of Lucca offers some of the most picturesque views in Italy; the antique summer villas and estates of the Lucchese nobility with their gardens, vineyards and olive groves, the ancient farmhouses and the medieval hilltop villages are unique. Travelling north one finds the spa town of Bagni di Lucca with it's thermal swimming pool and on the other side of the Serchio river is the town of Borgo a Mozzano with it's famous Devil's Bridge. The area to the north is know as Garfagnana and the panorama gradually changes from pine cladded hills to a more mountainous terrain.

Guestbook comments from the manager

hello eve,

i could not find a place to write a review on the website so i thought i would send it to you and you can post it where you please.







Our experience at this home could not have been any better. The house itself is nice, spacious, and clean! The gardens and the views around the house are spectacular! The house is private and is wonderfully located close to Lucca...which is a very kid friendly town if your traveling with children. Eve and her husband were very helpful and friendly upon arrival and departure. I highly recommend the home as a home base for your tuscan vacation.

Excellent property, great location

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week in this villa which is spacious, peaceful with lovely gardens and beautiful views of Lucca, one of Italy's most attractive cities. The house and pool are excellent and the location is very hard to beat as it is less than 10 mins to Lucca and less than half an hour to Pisa and the beach. From Lucca it is only seven euros by train to Florence if you don't fancy driving. It is good to have a car, however, as the villa is also a great base for exploring the very beautiful Garfagnana area. Barga is worth a trip and is not far away. Mind you, you could spend a week in the villa and be very tempted not to move far as it is so peaceful and well equipped. We very much enjoyed eating our meals on the terrace and looking over the spires and domes of Lucca. Fantastic place and I would thoroughly recommend it. Eve Cameron and her husband, Angelo, could not have been more helpful and deserve praise for the upkeep of the lovely garden.

magnificent Lucca.

  • 5 of 5
Villa La Magnolia:
Situated in the village of San Lorenzo a Vacolli in the hills near Lucca, Ideally located around 40 mins drive from pisa airport, and a short drive into the renaisance jewel that is Cittadina di Lucca.
The villa is in a quiet location above the main street of the village, and has great views of Lucca from the pool terrace.

Eve and Angelo the owners had everything ready for us ( 2 couples) having bought a "welcome pack " of grocieries at our request, the villa was very well equipped, and clean. The gardens were just starting to show spring flowers, but it was unseasonably cold for the time of year, so not as far on as one would normally expect.The heating and hot water was perfectly adequate for our needs.
the pool area was very clean and tidy, but too cold for a swim ( unless you were very brave). We hired a car, but there is a bus service that runs from the village into Lucca.

Eating out:
What can we say, we did not have one bad meal, we ate at posh restaurants like La Buca di San Antonio, but our favorite place was Da Leo, packed full of Luccese ,very tasty food and not too expensive.

Environs:
Lucca is a charming walled town which is full of historical architecture, and you can still walk around the walls overlooking the town. Puccini lived there, and there is an Opera Festival each year dedicated to his works, if you get there at the right time of year, well worth attending.
Florence and Pisa are within easy reach by car or public transport.

In conclusion we would reccommend a stay at Villa la Magnolia, a very spacious villa , with Eve & Angelo easlily available for help and advice on what is going on in the area

Stephen & Avril.

Summer in Lucca

  • 5 of 5
The Villa, was tucked away in a small pretty village between Pisa & Lucca, it was in a central area for both the beaches of the Tuscan coast and the historical heart of Tuscany, The villa was very comfortable for 2 large families of 5 and 6 persons, with everything required for a nice relaxing holiday.
The pool was fantastic ideally placed above the house but a stones throw from the large exterior eating area and inside kitchen, the house itself was very welcoming and we felt at home from the moment we arrived, I would certainly recommend it for families with children ours were between 5 and 14, but ensure the pool gate is closed for the young ones.
We were lucky to be there in a heat wave, and my only comment would be a portable air conditioning unit for those odd weeks of extreme heat would of been great. Thanks for a great holiday the area never disappoints.
All the best

Family Holiday, 6 of us from 49yrs to 2 1/2yrs

  • 5 of 5
The house was exactly as described. It was clean and well kept with ample towels linen etc. The gardens and pool were wonderful, secluded and private. The house location is idyllic and relaxing, sitting in the evening with a cold beer looking over the hills and olive groves, with the bats flitting about, marvelous.
Plenty toys for the wee one and some garden toys for the daft ones made days by the pool fly by.
Pisa 1/2 an hour away to the tower, Florence a good hour but easy to get to.
Lucca is ten min down the road, it has everything you need for supplies in the new town.
But best of all are evenings in Lucca old town, wandering around the shops, eating out in the piazzas. Restaurants vary from basic pizza to fine dining. decent average was about 15 euro/head.
The hotel Da Carlos restaurant in Santa Maria del Giudic, on the SS12 toward pisa, provides a very good meal for the price of a pizza meal in Lucca.
Eve and Angelo provided a warm welcome and all the information we needed. They were flexible over an early arrival. A lovely couple who try to ensure you enjoy your stay.
The pictures of the house are accurate and if you google map Traversa Prima Via di Vaccoli.it is the end house with the pool.
If your looking for comfortable accommodation in peaceful surroundings, you will not be disappointed with this house

Great Location, Slightly Disappointing Interior

  • 4 of 5
This is a lovely villa in a great village location, 10 minutes from Lucca and 20 minutes from Pisa. There's also an attractive beach resort 30 minutes away at Viareggio. The villa's gardens are very well-kept, and the swimming pool is generously sized. There are stunning views from the garden across the valley towards Lucca and the mountains.

The downside is well described in the review by 'Lovelucca' below. The interior of the house has not had the same care as the exterior. There is a lot of old furniture and the kitchen was a bit musty. What's more, the oven didn't work properly - it took three hours to roast some potatoes - which was a bit of a problem given that we had small children and were confined to the house at dinner times. The hob and grill worked fine, though.

Tips: the Esselunga on the way to Lucca is a very good supermarket; parking in Lucca is quite easy if you enter through Porta Elisa, where there's also a tourist information office; great restaurants in Lucca include Da Leo and Locanda di Bacco; and cycle rental in Lucca is very cheap and a great way to get around via the medieval ramparts.

Owner's Response: In reply to this review I would like to point out that the kitchen was thoroghly cleaned before they arrived and that the oven is working perfectly and I did show them how to use it. If it was a problem they could have phoned us at any time and we would have come and sorted out the problem. They had all our telephone nos mobile and land line. As to the old furniture, this also is not true, there is a big difference in old furniture as stated and good quality 50's stile furniture, there is one dressing table in the twin bedroom which the top needs resurfacing but this is the only thing that can be said. The rest of the furniture is all in order. Maybe they are angry that we didn't supply the high chairs they asked for and I apolgise for this.

Summer Holiday in Lucca

  • 4 of 5
This property was ideal for our extended family. It was spacious, well-equipped, clean, well-maintained. The plumbing deserves a special mention(!) - all the showers worked very well and we did not exhaust the hot water supply. It was ideally located for our purposes which was to be within driving distances to PISA (30mins top), LUCCA (20mins top) & beaches. Getting to Florence was easy on public transport too. The villa pool didn't taste (!) quite right and Angelo (who tended the gardens regularly throughout our stay) was quick to apologise for getting the chemical balance wrong - None were added in the second week and it did improve. It was fully usable and very pleasant throughout our 2 week stay. There were two flat screen TVs both attached to SKY which was a bonus to both the male 'Olympic' members of our party and the 'kids TV' crowd! There was also access to a phone for local calls and a wireless router was blinking upstairs so I guess internet access would be possible (we didn't avail ourselves of this). There were some excellent local restaurants and a big Gelataria nearby (walking distance).
the local shops were a bit hit & miss for opening times but essentials could be had there (we mainly used the Carrefour in LUCCA or PISA -equidistant). We wished we had used the local butcher a lot more however - he was a late discovery but had some fantastic meat on display and was willing to try and communicate with us, even given our non-existant Italian.
We could have benefitted from doing a bit more research on the local environs before coming (our fault) but would also have valued a bit more local 'tourist'-type information to hand in the villa eg the local shop locations and opening times, local restaurant recommendations, advice on good days out etc etc Although to be fair both Angelo AND Eve were very forthcoming when asked.
TOP TIPS- The local tourist info at San Lorenzo a Vaccoli is excellent./ Parco di Pinocchio is for VERY little children only/ STEFANI restaurant down the road is excellent as is the Pizaria opposite the road. Parking for LUCCA> park for free outside the city walls and walk in.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this to a friend.
Lastly - DON'T rely on Eve's directions from the airport (sorry Eve!!) use AA autoroute or similar- It is a very simple route but I guess only if you're used to it!!!

San Lorenzo is a small village between Lucca and Pisa and it has all facilities.There is a tennis club nearby and baby golf, children's playground and hills and mountains for hiking. It abounds with really good restuarants and the nearest antique museum and park are at Vicopelago wich is 5 mins away by car.

It is within easy reach of all major attractions in the area and the city of Lucca has the most outstanding walls and ramparts surrounding the old town. It is possible to hire bikes at a daily or weekly rate. In the town there are wonderful botanical gardens to visit and many churches and museums. The Duomo is spectacular as is the Foro of San Michele in the centre of town.Outside the wallsyou can go north towards Bagni di Lucca and see the famous Devil's Bridge and then further north to the wonderful city of Barga and then Garfagnagna, the capital of which is Castelnuovo di Garfagnana. To the south of Lucca you reach the beautiful beaches of Versilia with all water sports .
